What to expect?
When a class takes part in a Fighting Words workshop, they spend the first part of the time working together as a group. Facilitated by a moderator, they create the plot for an original story through role play and improvisation. They then work together in smaller groups, developing characters, setting and plot, adding dialogue and editing as they go. Each participant then has the opportunity to work on their own, individual pieces of writing, helped and encouraged by Fighting Words volunteer tutors. They will then be encouraged to read their stories aloud, if they wish – and the writing process and story elements will be discussed by the group.
We can only accommodate one class for each workshop. Booking is essential and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Fighting Words workshops are always free of charge to the participants. To book a Fighting Words workshop, please contact Theresa – firstname.lastname@example.org
